Eyes of My Soul

O eyes of my soul,
Eyes of my spirit,
Eyes of my heart,
See!

See the glory revealed
In all creation.
See the Son
Hidden in the least
To the greatest.

Recognize the Christ,
Lord of all.
Lord over the earth
Lord over the sea
Lord raised above the heavens.

Enthrone Him, King,
King of your soul,
King of your spirit,
King of your heart.

As light illuminates,
See that you are a new creation.
See Christ, in this moment,
As in the breaking of the Bread.

No Greater Love

You wait for me.
You wait upon me.
You wait for a return of love.

The heights that bar our union are great,
But No Greater Love
Springs o’er the mountains.

No Greater Love leaps the hills,
To stand outside my gate,
Singing songs that stir my heart.

Scale my many walls, O Love!
Find me here ready.
Anoint my head, my soul, my mind.

No Greater Love delights
To pour Eternity upon me,
With an exchange of wedding vows.
